Third Culture Kids
Posted 05/07/2014 10:48AM

As our school year comes to a close, many of our families transition to new schools in new places, as well as back to their home countries. As I often receive requests for resources for our Third Culture Kids and ex-pat experiences, I thought it to be a good time to make these more public to our community. Our experiences overseas have generated quite the online community, so here are some resources to browse whether you’re a parent, teacher, administrator, or student yourself. As always, please contact me if you have any concerns or questions regarding the TCK experience or transitioning!

(REMINDER: As with anything on the internet, especially before registering your personal information, please read the ‘fine print’ terms and conditions.)
This website features links, articles, and support resources to TCK’s and their families. You are able to access some of their materials directly from the website, however you do need to enter your email address to access their full database of resources.
This website has an association with tckworld (above). Among other resources, you can join a TCK support group through their website.
Internations is an ex-patriate support website. It has a more extensive registration process for membership, but provides contact information for other members in your area and access to resources.
This resource provides “personal essays, studies on relationships, interviews with successful TCK’s and the article that started it all”.
Families in Global Transition provides articles and videos for parents and teachers.
